2004 – 2005 1 year industrial placement at 3t Products, a product design consultancy based in Southam, Warwickshire. During this time I worked in a small team of designers and my main areas of responsibility were concept generation and CAD modelling and rendering. Working with only a handful of others helped to improve my personal communication skills and also taught me to take everything in good humour. A selection of the work I produced at 3t, and some more current work can be found on my website.
2004 – 2000 Part-time work for Lodge Construction, where I would work as a labourer. Although not where my main interests lie, this job gave me invaluable experience in dealing with all aspects of building, from laying foundations and brickwork to tiling roofs.
Throughout the Industrial Design course at Loughborough and my year in industry at 3t I have gained experience in a broad range of design processes, from concept generation and development, to brand identity, manufacturing processes and CAD modelling and rendering. I chose a selection of modules on the course including Mechanics for Designers, Product Styling and Semantics, Computer Aided Modelling and Manufacture, and Internet and Interface Design. I felt that these modules gave me an understanding of many wide-ranging design aspects that have proved useful both at my time at 3t, and my final year of the course. I have become experienced in many 2D and 3D CAD applications, including; Solidworks, Pro-Engineer, Rhinoceros, 3D Studio Max, Maya, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash.
As a result of spending long hours at a desk during my placement, I decided to take up the challenge of running the London Marathon in 2005. Since completing it I have continued to run regularly, and also enjoy participating in other activities including football and swimming. I am also interested in computer modelling and animation, and have been practicing this whilst at university.
